So why is the U.S. military staying longer in Afghanistan to keep bleeding in a war that was lost long ago? Why is President Obama leaving behind a force whose story may turn out to be a reprise of an old western movie in which a valiant but tiny cavalry unit mans a fort surrounded by savage Indians and waits for reinforcements that do not come in time to rescue it? Why do we care what happens in Afghanistan after already losing the war, wasting the lives and limbs of several thousand U.S. Marines and soldiers, and expending a trillion wasted dollars, a goodly part of which cannot be accounted for?
Once again the vicious, amoral, and reality-free man Americans have elected twice to the presidency has rushed to the media to exploit the dead and wounded and their families in the Oregon college shooting. President Obama says that we ought to “politicize” the killings because “only voting” can bring guns under the national government’s full control. No surprise there, Obama, Hillary Clinton, Biden, Bloomberg, and their fellow infant-butchering associates want to install a one-party, minority-run, police state in America — though they will call it “effective central government” or some other dissembling term — and know they will have to disarm Americans to do so.
